Summary: The "Sozialistische Warte" was the exile publication of the Internationaler Sozialistischer Kampfbund (International Socialist Campaign Organization), a small socialist group largely distanced from the workers' movement. The group's philosophy was based on the ideas of the University of Göttingen professor Leonhard Nelsen. Most of the members were students, white-collar employees, teachers and intellectuals. The Internationaler Sozialistischer Kampfbund objected to Marxism and focused on the developement of a new socialist concept based Kant's ethics. Despite its ideology of ethical socialism, the group believed in an undemocratic leadership. Members of the ISK remained active despite the Nazi ban in 1933, performing works of sabatage and helping political refugees leave. Its publication "Sozialistische Warte," which was smuggled into Germany, was valued by many resistance fighters for its factual reporting.
